Display Energy Certificates (DECs) show the actual energy usage of a building and should be clearly displayed at all times and be clearly visible to the public. They are only required for buildings with a total useful floor area over 250m that are occupied by a public authority and institution providing a public service to a large number of persons and therefore visited by those persons

Display Energy Certificates show  the Operational Rating for the building and are based on the actual energy usage. As the certificate relates to the actual energy consumption of the building as recorded by gas, electricity and other meters the public can see the energy efficiency of public buildings.

The Display Energy Certificate is always accompanied by an Advisory Report that lists cost effective measures to improve the energy rating of the building. Unlike the Display Energy Certificate which is valid for one year the Advisory Report is valid for seven years.

For further information on Display Energy Certificates you can access the CLG website below or to discuss your requirements further please do not hesitate in contacting us here at NRG Matters.

Under this legislation it is the responsibility of every occupier of a building affected by these Regulations to display a DEC in a prominent place clearly visible to the public, from 1 October 2008 unless there are exceptional circumstances.

This obligation was introduced by law1 and is to be enforced by Trading Standards Officers.
